is utterly dismissing mr. romney. romney's foreign policy mouthpiece was challenged by andrea mitchell to defend his somewhat hawkish posture towards iran. take a listen, dana. >> is governor romney really prepared to go to war with iran right now and open up a regional war? >> so governor romney has not advocated military action and any suggestion that he has by the president or his surrogates is a mischaracterization. >> dana, i'm sorry, so romney doesn't advocate military action, but the president is weak for not advocating military action. how does that one work? >> let me explain it that way, the position romney is taking on any foreign policy issue is he disagrees with president obama regardless of president obama's position on this. afghanistan. he disagrees with it. what would he do differently? >> nothing. >> we don't know. he disagrees with the position on iran, on israel. what would he do differently? nothing, because the united states are at the mercy of events unless he is going to reinstate the neocon advisers. >> 17 of the 24 advised president bush. >> and we saw what th
in massachusetts when he was governor, clearly romney's policies benefit the rich. i understand the frustration with the economy and not being as optimistic about the economy and being angry and wanting to blame the president. but the alternative is worse for the middle class when they look at the actual numbers. megyn: politico reports 54% of the total american electorate is the middle class -- usually their vote is split count middle. not this time around. >> maybe they are actually listen together results from massachusetts where he took the state from an expected large deficit to a surplus where he encouraged job growth in the way government should by getting out of the way. the fact is when the president says we are going to put more people to work on infrastructure we know how that translates. we'll borrow money from china and hire people for short-term jobs that don't lead to something that's long term. even middle class voters are saying this does not give us a long-term win. exactly two weeks after four americans were brutally murdered in libya we'll speak with someone who served with
with a president romney and foreign policy and next four years with a president obama foreign colorado. what do you foresee as the difference and where are they similar? >> oh, i think the difference will be significant. normally the republican and the democratic party have really within wibeen within the 40 yaro use a seasonal figure of speech. in the case of this president, we're not. he's way, way over in terms of the policy. governor romney without doubt understands that our country is exceptional. he recognizes the role we've played in the world. he believes the world is a better place if we're a participant in that world, and recognizes that it is not for us to go around the world apologizing and ringing our hands. what's called the arab spring is something happening in the islamic world. it's not arab only, because it's happening in a good many other countries as you know well. it's not spring, but it's summer and fall. it's going to be winter. it is a significant shift on the part of a lot of people in a lot of countries, who are encouraged and see the rise of islamist nonsecular forces in
is attacking president obama's foreign policy record at a campaign rally in colorado. romney said america needs a president who will shape events and not be at their mercy. jan crawford is in denver. jan, what happened to the reset that the romney campaign said they were going to do talking about economy and jobs? instead it seems like they're talking about foreign policy. >> reporter: right. it was foreign policy yesterday. although, romney has said he's going to be drawing a sharper contrast with the president. we sure saw that here in denver. he hit the president hard for saying recent events in the middle east were bumps in the road. he also criticized the administration's response to those attacks in libya. >> the world looks at the events going on. they don't see these events as bumps in the road. these are lives. this is humanity. this is freedom. >> reporter: campaigning in colorado, romney was referring to comments the president made to "60 minutes," when he said recent events in the middle east were bumps in the road. the white house said the president was talking broadly about events
the intelligence briefing. >> eric: why is romney letting obama run foreign policy now. why isn't he changing the debate rhetoric back to the economy? let's create outrage and say not meet with the world leaders. >> andrea: good point. it's unfortunate, when romney did come out and try to criticize the president and we know he was right in what he said. we found out two weeks later, seems like he shied away. he was right. he should continue to hammer home the point. but the media went after him. they went after him. he was right. >> bob: your question is on point here. here is the fact that this election probably about the smallest number of people going to the polls voting on foreign policy than any i can think of in recent years. right? so to keep the ball on foreign policy keeps it off of the main issues that people will vote on. >> dana: i don't think this is about foreign policy. this is about decency and about how he has conducted himself as president. some people might like going on the show, pimp with a limp and doing letterman in the same week. honestly, bob, president of the united
the president and mitt romney in the same city giving dueling foreign policy speeches. the romney campaign season opening in the wake of the terror attack in libya questions about the president's mideast policy. now as you note both men here in the battleground of ohio today sort of shadowing one another, domestic issues more the focus of course here in the midwest. 18 electoral votes in ohio. no republican has won the white house without winning this state first. as you know "the new york times" cbs battleground poll shows the president up 10 points. 53 to 4 3-point it. there is a lot of talk about republicans that there has been an over sam blink of democratic voters and the votes are being screwed against the romney campaign. nonetheless if you look at "the new york times" battleground poll, for example, previously the president only had a single digit lead here in ohio, now up to a double digit lead. even if it's off a little bit the bottom line is the trajectory is favoring the president at least for now arthel. arthel: on top of all that i should say the economy there in ohio seems t

. it was almost ignored. the romney story lasted for three days at a time when u.s. policy in the region was in collapse. which is almost entirely ignored. i think but we saw in the poll how people conceive this is exactly right. they watch and see and quite obvious which way the bias is going. >> we would like to know your thoughts on how the media has covered it and what the administration was doing. please find us on twitter. get to your headlines. widespread criticism for not meeting with benjamin netanyahu. called israel's prime minister on the phone. the white house said most leaders agreed they must prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. mitt romney also speaking with netanyahu about the country which he calls the world's greatest national security threat. >> we have very much have the same interests to make sure that iran does not develop nuclear capability which would threaten the existence of israel. threaten devastation potentially in other nations of the world we must make every effort to prevent them from making that nuclear capability. >> romney says he believes ther
